Movie Info

Jamilah Bishop (Megalyn Echikunwoke) seems to excel at everything: She's president of her sorority, captain of the step dance crew, liaison to the college dean and a star student who is on her way to to Harvard Law School. But when Jamilah is asked to teach a misbehaving, mostly white sorority how to step, success seems impossible. Without telling her own sorority sisters, Jamilah begins training rivals Sigma Beta Beta (SBB) for the "Steptacular" competitive dance competition.

Critic Reviews for Step Sisters

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

  • Step Sisters tries to straddle a similar line, and it has a lot to say about race, sorority life, and sisterhood, but its characters are not so much real people as mere vessels for different viewpoints.

  • Hits its beats enough to make fans of the genre tap their feet along with the action on screen.

  • Calling the jokes lazy feels like I'm giving them too much credit.

  • Step Sisters is especially disappointing coming from director Charles Stone III, who gave the world the joy of Drumline. No one would care about Step Sister's generic script if the dance scenes popped.

  • There are other stories to tell about being Black on a PWI campus that don't involve racial injustice and trauma... Jamilah brought that narrative to life in Step Sisters, and honestly, that's good enough for me.

  • ...while the stigma of skin color starts to fade in time for the film to make its statement on different worlds (from race to gender to class) relating and bonding over what they have in common, it's just a bit too late.
